Duxford gets all the Tens

Duxford Autumn Airshow 10-10-10

Very quietly and with nowhere near the fanfare it deserved the RNHF Swordfish arrived to provide the highlight of the year.
Image

It was SallyB’s birthday and Duxford didn’t let the American Air Museum’s flagship down. Its just a shame the USAF balls’d up their flypast. The based team did it right though.

Image

Image

The show then took on a training theme
Image

Image

Image

The Sea Fury follows the Seafire, just like it did in Korea.
Image

The Last of the Many, in more ways than one as PX865 is due a major and a repaint over the winter.
Image

The Pitts displays reminded me very much of the Rothmans team in the late 70s
Image

Just imagine what “Terry” thinks when he sees this, actually scratch that. If he’s that close he wont see it, he’ll feel it if he’s unlucky.

Image

A superb C-47 pairs display, a new team for next season?
Image

But they have redesigned the aircraft somewhat
Image

Here kitty

Sunset of the Sabre?

Its been a great season.

Nice set mate, really like the first Dakota shot and the Sabre in the sunset - what a way to finish the 2010 season.

The four-ship Pitts routine was in tribute to the Rothmans Aerobatic Team in actual fact and was the first time that four had been in formation at an airshow in more than two decades.

Simon, I did read that in the pre-show blurb on the web. It would be nice to get a Pitts 4 ship back on the circuit to contrast against the hordes of Extras we have nowadays. I Have a distant memory of seeing the Rothmans boys at While Waltham in 77.

A few more

Another vote for the Sabre image, Nick. Sally B image and the Stearman also stand out for me.
